Fabulous book. It and MacLysaghts other books are a must for anyone even remotely interested in their Irish heritage. He is one of those rare geniuses who comes along every so often.

Great book - use in conjuction with Irish Families 21 Oct 1998
By Eddie Geoghegan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a follow up to Irish Families by the same author. While the first book list a deal of information about the most common Irish surnames, this one picks up from where Irish Familes finsihed and includes quite good detail about the less common names. My advice - buy both!

Highly useful 21 Nov 2003
By Domhnall O'Donnchadha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A bit more obtuse and less approachable than his "Surnames of Ireland," it more than makes up for this in its thoroughness. Those that find fault with that book for its superficial description of surnames by derivation and location, may find themselves deluged by details in this text. It is rarely my first choice when seeking information, but it is a definitive resource where others might fail.

I love this book. It completes my set of Dr. MacLysaght's works. It filled in my understanding of Irish surnames, language and history.
